Muck Fork

This is not your everyday muck fork, it is a Flex 'n Fork, i received one as a gift and i used it just yesterday and again today to make sure i was not dreaming.
the handle is the correct length with the proper hand grips, and it is balanced so a person does not have to poke, and push and shake the bedding like they were at the gym. Just an easy slide under the poop and one easy shake and whalla done.

it is not cheap like the ones at the farm supply but if you buy two of those in a year than this one will last a lot longer, i bet at least two years. so it will pay for itself in no time.

here is the link to the manufacturer

I hope it works out thro the cold weather. My new cheaper one was soon missing 4 tines during the first use. I found a D handled manure fork at a garage sale and it does a fine job as long as it's handler is feeling ambitious.

According to the company it does work in the cold and frozen winters, he is in minus territory and the tines hold up. again i would not dig or try to pound ice and stuck poop in the frozen tundra.
and for a large basket this one has sides and idt does hold alot. besides what is nicer than spending time with your horses scooping his poopl?

I wish I could just muck out the house and use a blower, and I may actually get this sucker clean

Just curious-we use pelleted bedding in our stalls and am wondering if the fine tine fork would be better than the regular tines. If anybody has used these and can pass on their observations/advice I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance,,,,,

I use sawdust and i use this to pick up the arena. perhaps contact the we site and ask mr. joseph about it and be sue you told him where you saw it and horselady suggested you contact them.,
and NO i am not getting anything from them and i do not own the company
just a person that finds a good item and wants to spread the word.
and ny it is cool

Had to chuckle on that one,Slim!
I finally dug my trailer out of the snow, so decided to haul to an indoor arena, as we have more snow this year then I ever experienced in all of the 30 or so years living in Alberta!
Anyway, grabbed my brand new shaving fork, forgot that the poop I had left in the trailer, was now frozen, and promptly broke 6 teeth out of it!

I have been using this fork for a couple of weeks and i still love it. and it is not bending. or twisting or causing me strife.
i have used it in the snow to pick up unfrozen piles and in the yard during our thaw.

perhaps give it a try, yes it is costly but one fork to replace the 3 in a year to me is a savings.

So far the fork is holding up thru this winter of some of the coldest days we have had. of course nothing breaks up frozen to the ground poop other than tnt but in the stalls and arena it is still 100 percent ok.

The idea of picking manure up in a paddock has no appeal whatsoever. In Spring I scatter it with a drag and atv then when dry hit it with the riding mower which turns it to powder. This adds micro nutrients to the soil and parasites don't survive in it.

Don't usually review....

I do not normally take the time to review products-BUT - the Muck Ford is absolutely the best manure fork I have ever used. It is so durable, light weight and is worth the price paid for it-and more. I love it-I have 6 broken forks around the property-I use the best "broken" ones to scoop dog doo!

The flex fork is everything it says!! I have 2 of them now-I use the fine tines the most-I bought the regular one first - but then switched to the finer tines as I use shavings in my stalls and it is more efficient with the smaller bits of manure.

Great product!!! 10 Stars!!!

Glad you brought this up, and thanks for buy the fork. i have mine still and except for the dirt it is one hundred percent in perfect condition. i will be getting another one soon for my other barn so i do not have to cart it around.
I will tell the manufacturer that he is getting rave reviews.

I thought i would kick this back up again and say i still have the two forks i got from this company and they are still in fantastic working condition.
well worth the money and will absolutely replace your old. broken. el. cheapos that you get from fsc. and your feed and supply stores.

Has anyone used it with mini flakes? And does it get the small pieces of manure?
